DSU production offers free tickets to military members

Dakota State University Theatre continues its “theatre for change” theme with their latest offering, Cole Porter’s “Anything Goes.”  The play, which features performances by sailors on a ship at sea, will be offered free for active military, spouses and their children.  

Performances will take place on March 31 and April 1 and 2 at 7:30 pm.  Thirty percent of all ticket sales will go to support the National Military Families Association (NMFA), along with any loose change collected in the lobby.  

DSU will also offer up to 100 free tickets per show for people with military ID’s to come and see the big cast and orchestra perform some of Porter’s iconic numbers, including “You’re the Top,” “Anything Goes,” and “I Get a Kick Out of You.”  In true military fashion, ID’s must be shown at the door.

Donations will benefit NMFA, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing support to spouses, parents, and children of military personnel in all seven uniformed services.

DSU theatre director Kelly Macleod has made the “theatre for change” theme a part of local theatre, raising money for pet shelters, Alzheimer’s research, and other causes related to productions.  

Tickets for “Anything Goes” are $10 for adults and $3 for children 12 and under. DSU students can attend free with their student ID.  The production contains some mild adult language.

The cast has prepared for battle, ready to sing, dance, tap, and shuffle their way into hearts young and old.  Call for tickets at the DSU theater box office at 605.256.5666.
